Paint and paint products are banned from the Landfill and must
be managed as household hazardous waste. Dried out latex paint
is the exception.

The County is planning on participating in a statewide paint recycling program that will
allow residents to bring their paint and some paint related products to the Landfill for
recycling during regular hours of operation, much the same as e-waste. That program
should be in place in 2014.
